In October, I had the opportunity to sit down (virtually) with Liz Harrison, Partner, McKinsey & Company, during ITSMA’s 27th annual Marketing Vision Conference. Liz and I discussed an array of topics related to the role of sales enablement B2B in a world of digital, remote, and hybrid selling.

In particular, we explored the role of marketing in enabling sales and where it’s heading.

Below is a brief (two and half minutes) clip of our 45-minute discussion. In this clip, you’ll hear Liz offer advice on how marketing can drive organization growth through sales enablement:

  • While sales enablement does not need to live within marketing, marketing absolutely has to play a role.
  • Marketing should be more involved in the strategic elements of sales enablement, such as developing value propositions and providing customer insights to best position your company’s offerings.
  • Marketing should play a critical role in defining the ideal customer experience.
